obama a administration official called a plutonium bomb factory. united states and other countries are relieving sanctions and freeing up anywhere from $7 billion to as much as $20 billion in financial ofets as well as exports petrochemicals, auto industry parts, and other things. it is not clear the sort of concession we got from iran is worth that money yet. this is why you're seeing senators like robert menendez and mark kirk from illinois move potentially as early as next week to try to table sanctions that iflegislation there is no real movement on the program in terms of really constraining it, sanctions may kick in. >> do you think the senate leadership will bring those? the reason menendez and kirk and other members -- particularly those two members -- are negotiating is because they're coming up with an approach amid this geneva plan that is workable and is not completely undercut it that creates the right pressure for iran to really negotiate in good faith toward any final agreement. it is not clear when the start date is. it was introduced in late november. the united st

"the new york times" reports insurance companies are still not receiving all the information about individuals who sign up for coverage through the exchanges. and that creates a logistical nightmare for these guys. they need to track down that additional data and in some instances the insurance companies have no record that consumers signed up for coverage at all through the website. but former adviser to president obama david pluf insisted obama care will be viewed as a success even if it doesn't happen until after the president is out of office. >> this program was designed to be implemented by the states. in most of the states running our exchanges is going quite well. you talk about medicaid. i think it's just a fact that it may take until 2017 when this president leaves offs, you'll see almost every state running their own exchanges and expanding medicaid. i think it will work really well then. >> let's fast fo

with healthcare.gov. the obama administration said one in four americans who use the government website to sign up could have errors in their enrolment records. insurance companies are reporting records for enrolment files including name, address and your social security number. heath coverage is supposed to start january the 1st, giving than 30 days to fix the problem. doctors may end up with more patients and simply getting paid less for them. what is that, you mean? fewer doctors to choose from yourself. our resident health care reporter found out why. >> if you liked your during, you can keep your doctor, sos lopping as your doctor -- so long as your doctor keeps you. the new health law has many wondering if they can afford to keep self-insured patients. >> first-time physicians will see patients coming in with health insurance, covered through medicade because the expansion is one of the biggest parts of the insurance expansion in the affordable care act. >> that's a problem. many are covered under the health law. they restrict the number of medicade patients they accept because of low reimb
. here is a look at your top stoerpz. it's as different as night and day. >> that's how obama administration officials described healthcare.gov after the live -- two months after the website went live the. they are cautiously managing expectations. we just heard the crucial information about sunday's deadly train derailment in new york. the conductor was going 82 miles per hour as the train came into a 30 mile per hour zone. that critical curve. jo than marchttin joins us. jo jonathan, have you been able to physically see the curve in question that we are talking about here? >> reporter: from -- sort of, i would say. it's sort of hard to say with the bushes here we have been able to see sort of the vantage point. even governor cuomo said it's sort of a tricky curve. as we heard the folks from ntsb say that, 30 miles per hour, that is the limit around the curve. so to hear that this train was going 82 is shogging but it also echoes what some of the witnesses and some of the people on board were saying, that the train was going way too fast. so not many people, i am sure, surpr
healthcare.gov website, the obama administration now says the site is working for most people most of the time, which is what they were hoping for by december 1. if the health care website is, in fact, working that much more smoothly, that should musmooth e way for more people to get enrolled across the country. in the first nine weeks, in general, states running their own exchanges, kentucky included, they have done better than states that are not running their own exchanges and letting the federal government do it. but as the federal system works these kinks out, the numbers are going to keep going up. they're going to keep going up and up, even in places like mississippi, even in places like mississippi, which has done everything it can to ruin its own citizens' chances of getting health insurance, even to the point of unplugging what they had, which was working, which they designed for themselves. even in a state like mississippi, where the governor has been doing everything he can in his power to keep mississippi uninsured, even in mississippi, the numbers will rise over time.
website and claims from the obama administration the site is now working for a majority of americans, a nasty surprise may be in store for some of those americans trying to get insurance. turns out a long list of till unresolved problems means some people who thought they signed up for insurance may not actually be covered come january 1st. joining me monica crowley, fox news contributor, to talk about the political impact of all of this. you know the website issue was very visible, right? you try to log on, you can't do it. this is a different type of problem. it is not as easily seen and it is delayed. so how big of an impact is it going to be if it does happen? >> when the website launched on october 1st there were two huge problems we knew about. i'm sure there were more problems we didn't know about but two big ones we knew about right away. the first was the front end, what the consumer saw. they couldn't even log on. there was a lot of frustration people said i would like to get into the exchanges, i can't even log on, i'm being timed out, i'm losing my information. they said
? >> they do not like this at all. the obama administration, however, may like it, i think. president obama has already indicated that he will be proposal certain reforms to these processes and has a review panel going over them with a report due by the end of the year. so it's possible some of these ideas will line up with president obama's own reforms which may be resisted by his intelligence community. >> when it's resisted by the intelligence community, i guess that takes us to whatever the next crisis is, whoever wants to predict that. but does this drift away given the next security crisis for the nation? >> no question that if there were another attack, and these practices were faulted, that would be a disaster. and all efforts to reform them would then stop. and what this letter essentially is arguing is that the economic benefits to the u.s. economy and to these companies outweigh the reduction in risk that arises from these surveillance practices. that's a very controversial point. they're good arguments on both sides of it. and it is in a way the crux of the matter. >> what i found i
, at least potentially. jim sciutto is watching what's going on. i know the obama administration is very concerned what these members of the senate are planning on doing. >> no question. this puts congress on a direct collision course with the white house. as you know, they have been lobbying hard, the administration has been lobbying hard against it, secretary kerry, including sending a video message over the holidays arguing against sanctions, saying that will in effect scuttle this deal. what we're seeing now, that intense lobbying campaign appears to have fallen on deaf ears, even among members of the president's own party. with the ink barely dry on the historic nuclear deal with iran, today the iranian foreign minister pronounced it dead if congress passes more economic sanctions. the entire deal is dead, he told "time" magazine. we do not like to negotiate under duress. even so, sources tell cnn republican and democratic senators are close to doing exactly that, nearing agreement on a bill to impose new sanctions within six months unless iran ships all stockpiles of enriched urani

, the united states, that is not the leadership i expect of my government. the clinton, bush, and obama administration is isolating the united states on this issue. i ask what kind of message is this sending the rest of the world in this lack of he leadership? we ought to sign it. we spend hundreds of millions of dollars removing the land mines and use the leahy funds to help land mine victims around the world. what are we afraid of? we have another law that says we cannot export land mines. let's so the courage. it only take as little bit to go for it and sign the treaty like every ally of ours has done. is that so difficult? let me tell you in conclusion. on november 22nd, remember the great loss this country suffered 50 years ago when kennedy was assassinated. i remember my wife being a young law student and watching the hundreds of thousands of people going down and it was so silent you could hear the drums when the band left and you can hear the lights in the street lights change. and i have been thinking about that a lot in the last few days. we have talked about it and what it fe
